WANTED! Distraction Burglary Suspect

The above photo is the likeness of a suspect wanted in connection with a distraction type, residential burglary. The crime occurred on December 17, 2010, at about 11:30 am, at a residence in the 1000 block of Fairview Avenue.

The suspect knocked at the residence door and said that he worked for the water department. The suspect wore an identification badge around his neck that had "State of California" written on it and the name, "John". The suspect said that he was there to check water pressure and the victim allowed him to come inside. The suspect walked throughout the residence and turned on water faucets. While inside the master bedroom, the suspect asked the victim to go and turn off water in the kitchen. The victim left the suspect unattended for a time and returned to find the suspect leaving the residence, telling the victim that he was going to get some paperwork from his truck. The suspect did not return. Shortly thereafter, the victim found the bedroom ransacked and jewelry missing.

The suspect is described as a male, unknown race, 30-39 years old, 5'-09", 150 lbs, black hair, brown eyes, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt.
